We automatically collect some data from your computer when You surf our pages. This includes for instance your IP address, browser type, operating system used, the website where You came from and the time of visiting the Website.

We send a free newsletter to inform readers about news, reviews, travel tips and holiday deals.
A valid e-mail address is required to sign up to the newsletter. No further data is necessary. Once registered, You may choose to provide your name and address, but this is not obligatory. The data collected is only used to send the newsletter and will not be passed on the third-parties.
When registering to receive the newsletter, your IP address and the date of registration will be stored. This is used as proof in case a third-party misuses, such as someone registering without the knowledge of the person for whom the newsletter is intended.
You can withdraw your consent to the saving of the data and e-mail address at any time. The revocation can be done via a link in the newsletter itself. By doing this You will automatically stop receiving the newsletter and your details will be deleted.
We use the e-mail platform MailChimp to send newsletters. When You register for our newsletter, the data You provide in the registration will be transferred to MailChimp and stored on their servers. After registering, You will receive an e-mail from MailChimp to confirm your registration (“double opt-in”). MailChimp provides extensive analysis on how the newsletters are opened and used. These analyses are group-related and are not used by us for individual analysis. MailChimp additionally uses the analysis tool Google Analytics and includes it in the Newsletter where appropriate. For more details on Google Analytics, please refer to the “Google Analytics” section.
